What has happened at our nation’s traditional Evangelical Christian seminaries and colleges?
Over the past several years, pastors and professors graduating from seminaries in the United States seem to be more familiar with French postmodernists, liberal radicals, and open society progressives. These wayward philosophies manifest themselves in concepts such as critical race theory, white privilege, systemic racism and other forms of postmodern deconstructionism.
What exactly is going on and how can this problem be reversed?
The answer lies in two forms. First, in the average evangelical church pew in the form of the common man or woman who takes the responsibility of being a good Berean along with the infallible guide of Holy Scripture. Secondly, in faithful pastors who are willing to endure criticism and hardship in order to break from the postmodern direction of their denominations, para-church ministries, and seminaries.
